Health Fleet Manager Named AfMA Fleet Manager of the Year
The 2014 Australasian Fleet Management Association (AfMA) Fleet Manager of the Year was presented to Kevin McEwan of Melbourne Health for its objective to improve services to clients in an environment of diminishing funds and an aging fleet.
Investigation into vehicle utilization patterns identified significant savings and operational efficiencies for Melbourne Health. The success of this project was measured by the retirement of a significant number of vehicles as well as the introduction of a more efficient vehicle booking system, according to AfMA.
Staff and management were consulted with on a continual basis and kept informed of plans, intentions and progress, providing a sense of ownership ensuring acceptance and success of the initiative, according to AfMA.
